Today you turned three. It is cliche, but I can't believe you're only three -- I feel like you've been part of us for so much longer than three years. You came into our lives in the wake of a tremendously sad time for me, and I suppose God knew what he was doing because you came into the world full of joy and light. I needed all that you had to give so much.
You talk a lot. As in All. The. Time. You love Barbie movies. You want us to get a cat. With "tiny wings." You love mermaids and fairies; they are "your favorite girls."
Charlotte-girl, you bless me daily with your love and the lessons you teach me You are helping me to be a better parent as I'm stretched to guide and love someone who is so different from me. I admire so much about you and pray daily that God would give me the grace to help you grow more and more into who He made you to be.
Happy Birthday my sweet girl!
